Pu Luong Natural Reserved Area
Located in Thanh Hóa Province, about 3 hours southwest of Hanoi, Pù Luông Nature Reserve would live up to most people’s image of an idyllic Vietnamese landscape and rural life...
Everlasting green Limestone Mountains range, jungle forest enclose a fertile river valley, Alternated with peaceful ethnic villages of Thai people. Green rice fields extend from the waters’ edge to very dense -forested slopes, which are streaked with waterfalls. Women in conical hats tend the fields, men herd buffalo and goats from one pasture to another, and children play with domestic animals in courtyards, or take turns jumping from bamboo bridges into rivers. It appears – to the casual visitor, at least – to be a landscape where nature is entirely benevolent; a land so fertile that steadily feed local inhabitant throughout the year.Pu Luong nature reserve Multiple choice home-stay in Pu Luong area, travel to this place visitor will have a feeling of being isolated, beauty rustic and friendly home-stay.

Pu Luong home-stay introduction Home-stays in Vietnam offer basic facilities and some of the best value accommodation and authentic local foods which are cannot be found in city, home-stays here are the best choice for off the beaten track travel style, but not too far from an easy transport or tourist hub. The home-stays in Ban Hieu village is the most atmospheric and romantic you could hope to find. Every single home-stay made out of wooden on stilts with a thatched palm-leaf roof. Its location – on the mountainside, looking down into the valley – is fantastic. Considering its remote position (and compared to the standards of home-stays in the area, the level of comfort here is quite luxurious. Downstairs, in the open-sided living room, there are cushioned sofas and swinging chairs with views over the valley. Upstairs is an ‘open-plan’ bedroom, with mattresses on the floor and mosquito nets hung from the roof-beams. Very clean toilets and showers are outside in well-made bamboo compartments. Food is all local, fresh and delicious. Mr Si’s home-stay located at the end of sloppy dirt trail that wind up a sharp incline beside a gushing mountain stream. The clear water descends in stages; flowing quickly, then collecting in a series of perfect rock pools at regular intervals, as it makes its way down to the river at the bottom of the valley. These gin-coloured pools are great for bathing, and they give the impression that the course of the stream has been ‘terraced’ according to the contours of the slope; in the same way that the surrounding rice paddies have been terraced. The rock pools are dripping with foliage, as are the bamboo stilt houses that are scattered across the mountainside. See more choice for Pu Luong Tour Packages or contact us
